Insight: Arena Term Sheet / Capitol Chat / "As You Like It" / Wennberg Showcase

Published March 22, 2013

Arena Term Sheet - The City of Sacramento did not release a term sheet for an arena plan that could keep the Sacramento Kings from moving to Seattle. City Manager John Shirey had set Thursday's deadline for the proposal, but decided it wasn't ready and postponed the release until further notice. An open house at City Hall regarding the planned release still went forward. Capital Public Radio Reporter Bob Moffitt has been covering the story and brings us the latest, including a new potential investor in the basketball team. We'll also talk with two people opposed to the city's involvement in purchasing the team and building an arena. We'll talk with Isaac Gonzalez, the creator of, and Patrick Soluri, a Sacramento attorney, about their concerns.

Capitol Chat - Capitol Bureau Chief Ben Adler joins us for our weekly look at California's Capitol and what lawmakers are working on, including state republicans push to change realignment and why legislative democrats blocked Gov. Brown's adult education budget proposal. We'll also take a look local and statewide unemployment numbers.

"As You Like It" - Big Idea Theatre bills itself as a little theatre with big ideas and their current production of Shakespeare's "As You Like It" is no exception. Set in contemporary downtown Sacramento's homeless population, director Benjamin Ismail gives the classic a new twist. The cast and producing team spent time talking to the homeless in Sacramento's midtown and downtown regions as research for the production and have pulled off what the Sacramento News and Review calls a "love letter" to Sacramento. We'll talk with the director and meet two of the actors - Ryan Snyder, who plays Orlando, and Jamie Kale, who plays Rosalind.

Wennberg Showcase - More than 400 students in eight different orchestras will be performing and representing the Davis public schools music program during the annual Wennberg Music Festival this weekend. We'll talk about the showcase and why it was started with Angelo Moreno, the senior Orchestra Director of the Davis Schools Secondary Orchestra Program, and Hiram Jackson, former President of the Davis School Orchestral Music Association.
